Reconfigurable HW devices, such as FPGAs, are very popular in today's embedded systems design due to their low cost, high performance, and reconfigurability. FPGAs are inherently parallel, that is, two or more tasks can execute on a FPGA device concurrently as long as they can both fit on it. FPGAs are widely used in today's embedded systems design due to their low cost, high performance, and reconfigurability. Partially RunTime-Reconfigurable (PRTR) FPGAs, such as Virtex-2 Pro and Virtex-4 from Xilinx, allow part of the FPGA area to be reconfigured while the remainder continues to operate without interruption, so that HW tasks can be placed and removed dynamically at runtime.
